Koji-Kin Rice Spores - Aspergillus Oryzae - 100g/200kg
Best for making Koji rice, light-colored miso, white sweet miso, and amazake (sweet sake).
Making your own koji starter is a 2-step culturing process: first to make rice koji rice with the spore culture, Koji-kin, which can be made as a large batch and stored or frozen for later use. Then the second half of the process is making the desired cultured food, such as miso, saké, pickled cultured vegetable condiment, or the fresh amasaké, which is very easy to produce.
This culture is best suited for a person with some culturing experience. However, complete instructions are on our main site so anyone can try. Koji rice is a needed ingredient for making Japanese saké, sweet white Shiro Miso (1 month) and light yellow Shinshu Miso (6-12 months), and almost all traditional Japanese cultured food products.
